A Sign of Life at The General – The Pontiac Solstice GXP

OK, it’s not the most refined sports car ever made, but the Solstice GXP is one terrific bang-for-the-buck vehicle.  The roughly 3000 pound GXP edition gets 260hp and 260 ft-lbs of torque out of its direct-injection, turbocharged 2.0 liter, four-cylinder motor.  Not too shabby.  This model also offers a stiffer suspension and a taller axle ratio than the standard version, making it corner and accelerate better.  As equipped, the Solstice GXP runs in Porsche Boxster territory getting to 60 in 5.6 seconds and through the quarter mile in 14.2 seconds.  Yeah, it doesn’t corner or track as well, but it’s pretty close considering that all this can be had for about $26K.  A little more than half the price of the Boxster.

The base edition Solstice apparently outsold the Mazda Miata in its first six months of availability and there apparently is already a waiting list for the GXP.  If you’re interested, get in line.

  1. Great ride, nice article…
    FYI, you pontiac lovers – I found an online store with bunch of pontiac accessories to choose from, and they do sell for Pontiac Solstice GXP already! Rush to shop for your Solstice there, people.
